"lyophilized". Never heered tell of sech afore til now... Had to look it up. This site is always an education. Question. Why do you believe freeze dried is better than frozen?Best would be lyophilized food but if you don't have it, the next best thing is frozen food , then dried food.
It's a matter of protein and amino acids structural integrity.
Perhaps you could give them some fresh food too. I heard clams have a variety of different nutriments that can be a good diet for us as well.
Of course people will either ignore that fact or disbelieve it. I would not suggest feeding dry foods I'd necessarily bad but I don't believe dry foods provide the best for fish, variety and providing what the fish would eat on the reef as near as is possible IMO is best.Just a point to remember. Just because a fish eats something with gusto does not necessarily mean it's good for them. Anybody fancy a big juicy full of fat burger.
Thank you for the feedback! We distribute TONS of frozen and dry foods and we are fortunate to have so many quality foods available. Based on the feedback we have received from public aquaria and aquaculture facilities it seems fresh or recently frozen foods have more intact lipids and fatty acids than processed dry foods. I would venture to say this is the reason public aquariums have their own food preparation areas and staff to prepare foods daily. There are some amazing dry foods out there, like TDO and NLS but the more any food is processed there is the chance for some nutritional degradation to occur. This is especially true if exposed to excessive heat.Nothing compares to LRS Reef Frenzy frozen food. My eyes don't lie to me. Colors on fish are brighter. I don't care how much it is, I will gladly pay for it.
